An unique element of bladder urothelium is a multilayer membrane, which extends from the renal pelvis to the urethra. Urotelial membrane covers more than 90% of the inner portion of the bladder and is in direct contact with urine. Urothelium is composed of characteristic two-dimensional, asymmetric plaques, composed of uroplakins (UP), differentiated, hexagonally arranged proteins.
